I met my cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jane Weston through a friend who was a nurse for her in her surgical room. I started seeing Dr. Weston 12 years ago, and have some liposuction, Botox,fillers and a few small minimally invasive procedures with her. I have been very happy with her and her artistry, and decided to jump into upper and lower bleph for my tired eyes. She has been saying for sometime... more
I looked tired all the time. Looked older than I really am. People were always commenting about my eyes.
I am so happy I did this, now I look fresh and getting lots of compliments, and don't feel so tired.
This clinic was awesome from the first meeting , the operation, the staff the doctor are amazing. more
I noticed that my upper eyelids had become "hooded" over the last year or so. My eyes naturally go down at the sides but recently it looked as though I were tired all the time. I am one month post surgery-NO scarring, NO change in my appearance other than I look better rested AND I can see a bit better! JUST what I wanted.
Here is a pic of my eyes before (as requested)! The question was... more
In general, I was having a difficult time finding a skilled surgeon in the Bay area to do my blepharoplasty, which was necessary for medical conditions. For example, the surgeon that I found at a well known institute had not done it on someone my age before and only did the surgery once a month. I was being very specific in what I was looking for - not only did I want my medical condition... more
I consulted with Dr. Lynn Chiu-Collins and two other well respected surgeons when I was looking for a solution to my increasingly puffy lower eyelids. Dr. Lynn Chiu-Collins far surpassed her competition by taking the time to explain the causes of my condition and the possible solutions. Her level of expertise, amount of experience, and sensibility made me very comfortable and it was an easy... more
My surgery (Upper Bleph) is scheduled for this coming Friday 06/20/14 and I'm starting to have "cold feet". Is this normal? I did my research and trust the doctor. But after reading some of the reviews on this site, my main concern is the healing of the scars... Any advice will be really appreciated... or just to know there are other people in the similar situation.... more
I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Ransom and Dee Roby! Simply the best surgery experience I could have hoped for! I'm 47 and my upper eyelids had becoming increasingly heavier since I was 40. I spent a couple of years seeing different surgeons, having consultations and researching their backgrounds and checking reviews. No doubt some of them were great surgeons but I never felt the immediate... more
LOVE my results from Dr. Ransom. I had wanted an upper bleph for a long time (droopy lids run in my family), and I was immediately comfortable with Dr Ransom.
Definitely worthwhile, and I am very pleased with the outcome.
I chose Dr Ransom because of great results from his past patients, and his strong academic background. more
I am looking for an advice and a great doctor who has a LOT of experience with GREAT results in blepharoplasty (eye lid) / midface procedure.
I need a good recommendation from someone who already did it. Please share this info with me if you can recommend me a very experienced doctor who focuses mainly on face/blepharoplasty.
I strongly believe in personal experience than in... more
I've always had bags under my eyes (since I was in elementary school), but it was the over eye droopiness was bugging me. The tired state of my eyes especially bothered me when I was applying makeup. I was nervous about scarring my face and/or (based on before/after photos I've seen), not particularly improving the situation. My eyes look better 4 weeks post-op, and I think they're still... more
I called Dr. Vistnes because my left eyelid sagged and my right eyelid was starting to and I was going to turn 50 in a few months. The staff at Dr. Vistnes' office is very professional and friendly. The procedure was one hour and you'll need someone to drive you home. Great after care and check ups. It was painless and all turned out perfect! more
I have battled with Graves Disease for the past 2 years. It has completely destroyed my self confidence. I would not wish this disease on my worse enemy. I've noticed over the last 2 years that there really isn't a lot of testimony or bloggers on the internet detailing their experience with Graves. So I've decided to use this forum to due just that. To make a very long story short, my eyes... more
I had an eye lift and fat removed under my eyes by Dr Delgado several years ago. Im surprised so many people have written in with rave reviews. My experience was a bit less so. I was happy with the bag removal but the eye lift was a horrific experience. He promised to remove a double crease on one eye (didn't happen) and he left bumps at the edge of the crease line which were really noticeable... more
Sagging eyes are a family trait, so after having had a lower blepharoplasty 10 years ago at age 30 outside of the US, it was now time for the upper blepharoplasty.
I did my homework researching options in the San Francisco Bay area, and chose Dr. Rajagopal for her experience, convenient location and reasonable pricing.
The whole process was a pleasure, from the initial complementary... more
I went to see Dr. Hessler because I feel like I've always had a "mean" look about me and I just wanted to see what a brow lift entailed. That said, I had never had any procedures before so I was really wary of doing something really drastic right away ... and Dr. Hessler was really understanding and helpful. She provided a few options - one was Ultherapy and the other was an upper bleph. I was... more
I went to Dr. Hessler for eyelid surgery.The result was better than I expected. I barely had any bruising, very little swelling, you can barely see the incisions, and the recovery time was very fast. (couple days, few Tylenols)
I plan on having a facelift in the near future, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face! more
I had been thinking about this surgery for years, and decided to have it done before I retired. I think I look great! I'm no beauty, but at a point I can truly say, 'this is as good as it gets' thanks to the surgery. I wish I had done it years ago. It turned out to be very easy and painless. I cannot think of even one thing negative about the experience and the outcome. more
After debating for years whether or not to have this surgery, I decided to go for it. I wish I had done it years ago! I've always had uneven eyelids, which didn't really bother me until one in particular became more saggy. I'm in my early 30s, and I felt like if it weren't for my saggy eyelids, I'd look much younger. I looked tired all the time, and my eyes and eyelashes didn't "pop" anymore... more
Had alot of fat in the inside corner of my eyes, as I got older it got worse, terrible to look at. Also very wrinkled eye lids. Can't say enough good about my surgery. The outcome is incredible. I look very much younger at 58 and everyone has noticed a change even in my personality. I feel so much better about myself. more
I am just 25 years old but I look like an old lady since my eyes always look tired and puffy. I always wear glasses to hide it but it was really frustrating. I decided to have a plastic surgery and had consultations with three plastic surgeons in Toronto. I am extremely happy that I made the right decision by choosing Dr. Togba for my Eyelid surgery. Initially it was difficult for me to look... more
